About This Piece

After Armageddon
Plains Conservation Center
65.5 million years ago

A giant asteroid the size of Denver struck the shallow seas covering Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula more than 65 million years ago. Dinosaurs and their ecosystems vanished in a flash. Within a few years of the catastrophe, vast meadows of ferns blanketed charred Colorado landscapes bisected by alligator-infested creeks. 

On the banks of West Bijou Creek, Denver Museum of Nature & Science paleontologists discovered a thin layer of debris that was left behind by the asteroid impact. Such deposits have been found worldwide. The site is owned by the Plains Conservation Center.
